Joce's Chicken Pasta Sauce

Recipe by JustJanS

Our most favourite pasta sauce lightened up

Top Review by The Flying Chef

This is one of the best pasta recipes I have made in ages. I cooked a little differently than stated as I have a gas stove top that gets really hot and I was afraid of burning. I cooked the bacon, onion and garlic step, then removed and placed into a bowl whilst I cooked the chicken and mushrooms and added the onion mix back once I had added the wine and stock. I followed everything else to a tee apart from adding a little more Parmesan cheese just our preference. I served over penne pasta as suggested and it truly was a totally delicious meal. Everyone raved especially my son who is a major pasta specialist as it is his favourite meal. I loved how easy it was to prepare and was loaded with flavour. I served ours with some salad greens and garlic bread. It smelled divine whilst cooking, it tasted even better, a true winner Jan that has gone straight into my favourites. :)
